MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – Students at Grahamwood Elementary are now recording artists.
They traveled to the legendary Royal Studios Thursday to record their own original song “No School Today”.
Not only did the students get to record the song at Royal Studios, they also got to work with “Uptown Funk” engineer and studio owner Boo Mitchell.
The trip was thanks to a partnership with the Mike Curb Institute for Music at Rhodes College.
“The idea was to do a field trip with kids so they could learn not only about Memphis music history but how young people at the forefront. Empower them to learn more about the amazing place they’re from and inspire them to do the next great thing,” said John Bass, Director, Mike Curb Institute for Music at Rhodes College.
The recording will be mastered and released this spring as part of a celebration of the arts at Grahamwood Elementary.
